Back from California

I spent the week attending a conference on stewardship hosted at a large church in Southern California. Events like that are always insightful. My favorite presentation was given by John Ortberg at the end of the conference. His subject – the kingdom of God. If you haven’t read Ortberg’s new book, When the Game is Over, It all Goes Back in the Box…get it.

I also got a chance to spend a little bit of time with my sister, brother-in-law, and parents in SoCal in the evenings. My spirit is full.
